With H1'2023 release ECT-210699 removed the ability to sync the Supervisior's position from Job Information to the Employee's Position > Higher Level Manager Position using a Business Rule. We had this condition defined on a Business Rule because in our organization we use 1:1 relationships between Position and Employee so the Supervisor (Position) on the Employee's Job Info Profile, should always be the Position assigned to the Higher Level Position on the Employee's Position.
We did this because using the Move currently assigned Position below new Manager's position would ONLY change the Manager on the Employee's position, and not change any other attributes that might have been updated during the same transaction. This causes the user to have to execute two transactions: One to update the manager and move the position, and another to update the additional Job Attributes that might have changed. Using the Business Rule to sync the Job Information Supervisor Position to the Employee Position removed the necessity of having to execute two transactions.
Do you have a suggestion for how you think that the issue can be addressed?
Bring the ability to sync the Job Information Supervisor Position to the Employee Position back - return the ability to use the Higher Level Position in the THEN Statements of Business Rules.
Develop functionality that will allow all Job Info changes to be updated, even if a Manager Change is included, on the employee's position so the user does not have to execute two transactions.
in general, our best practice is to update the position hierarchy and position attributes directly on the position. We are currently looking into how to simplify this process.
We removed the ability to sync the supervisor's position via the sync rule because this could lead to downstream issues and data inconsistencies. We will be looking into solutions to provide the capability of synchronizing jobinfo changes to the position when the Move Position with Supervisor switch is selected.
Which behavior would you expect if multiple employees are assigned to the same position?
